with 303 electoral votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders fro

and we are still waiting on an official number from florida. it is obvious the state has not fixed its voting problems. as i'm sure you remember, it was florida 12 years ago causing the legal disaster between vice president al gore and president george bush. the difference this time, no one cares as much. president obama's victory was well secured without florida's 29 electoral votes. but for florida natives this is frustrating and all too familiar. the state's whole voting system is plagued by bad management and dysfunction. it is usually elected officials running the voting process rather than nonpartisan professionals to. make this system more efficient what florida needs now is better access to polling places and more absentee and early voting. >>> it's also affecting the congressional race. g.o.p. representative allen west is now demanding a recount. the election there is still too close to call. west is down just 3,000 votes against his democratic opponent patrick murphy. west is blaming a county supervisor for r

a catastrophe from north dakota to florida and everywhere in between. who was to blame for that? that is not an esoteric matter. there is a named person in charge of making sure republicans win senate seats. there was somebody who was in charge of that. for every election. and that specific person in this election obviously failed catastrophically. that specific person is named john cornyn. today the republican party appears ready to respond to his atrocious failure at this job this week. by giving mr. cornyn a promotion. he's getting a reward for nearly shooting the moon in the senate. for doing as bad as humanly possible. at the last job the republican party gave him. the republican party moving forward, apparently would like him to be the number two republican in the whole senate right behind mitch mcconnell. and that is calling failing up. which is amazing on its own terms. in terms of republicans in the senate. i think we also should wonder if that is instructive for how the republican party is going to deal with the overall question of who their leader is and what they sta
